Mark, Whilst I understand your comments, the housing supply problems in some areas of the country make the practice followed in this case necessary to cope with a severe housing shortage. This doesn't make it right. Provided the tenants are complying with their tenancy conditions I think the landlord has taken the right decision to let them stay. The council should not re-house them with a secure tenancy if the reason for losing their private accommodation was self-inflicted, ie. didn't pay rent, caused nuisance. Whilst this does not avoid the legal costs of the private landlord recovering the property - he can point out (before incurring these costs) that if he takes action on breach of terms and is successful the tenants will not get their secure council tenancy. I have found this information does alter some attitudes of previously uncooperative tenants.
